Du bist zu schön um treu zu sein

The Cylinder Archive [www.cylinder.de] previous release for June 2000:
Du bist zu schön um treu zu sein - Written by Alois Kutschera
(You are too beautiful to be true)

Transferred from a German Columbia Phonograph Co. cylinder record (#57050) from ca. 1902-04.

This black wax cylinder had a severe edge chip damage but gladly could be repaired and transferred with several hours of different attempts.

Thanks to Paul in San Francisco who helped to identify the singer's full name. Although the Columbia cylinder reads his last name with a single 'F' I am also very sure that this is the very same voice.

Subject: Maybe Johannes Bischoff
There was a German opera singer named Johannes Bischoff (1874-1935). His wife was an opera singer too. He is usually categorized as a baritone. Apparently he recorded cylinders.

Subject: Was this "tenor" really a baritone?
Based on the lower register of this singer and no real notes of the upper tenor range, I should surmise that he was a baritone. I enjoyed the quality of the transfer and the competence of the singer.
